(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations supersede the Education (Teachers' Qualifications and Health Standards) (England) Regulations 1999 (“the 1999 Regulations”). Some drafting changes have been made to the 1999 Regulations and some obsolete provisions removed.
The provisions formerly within Schedule 2 to the 1999 Regulations are now incorporated within Schedule 2 to the Education (Specified Work and Registration) (England) Regulations 2003.
Schedule 2 to these Regulations specifies the various routes to achieve qualified teacher status. Under regulation 10, the General Teaching Council for England awards qualified teacher status to the persons mentioned in paragraphs 4 to 13 of Schedule 2.
